From the blog


From time to time, the SCFOL acquires collector editions, rare books, gently used special books and media materials such as CDs, through the generous donation of supporters of the Library.  Our book donation sorters comb the internet and rare-find book stores for comparable editions.  This requires hours of volunteer work.  Following their research, they price these finds at a very competitive price, for you, the buyer.  We hope you will check this area of the website often in search of a great buy!  If you see something you like it may be purchased on Amazon or send an email to [email protected] for information on how you can obtain the book.

    Dear San Carlos Library.
    I will gladly buy the Kwik and Kwak book by Oscar Fabres. Please tell me how to arrange this.

    This book was a part of my own library back in the 40′s! I would so like to get it for my young grandchildren’s library.
